Wired for Books: John Fowles

Synopsis
In this 1985 interview with Don Swaim, John Fowles starts the interview by talking about the common need for writers to work a second job. It is his opinion that too many writers choose a poor second job. Writers need to seek a second job that is less demanding so writers can still focus on writing as their first priority. The interview shifts away from other writers and focuses on Fowles. He talks about the actual history of events in A Maggot and how he slightly shifted the order of events. Along with the history of events, John Fowles discusses his writing style of ambiguity. He attempts to never explain anything all at once. Other works by John Fowles includes: The French Lieutenant’s Woman, The Ebony Tower, The Magus, and more
